SCOPE Presents... October 2015 Wrap-Up

You take off the halloween costumes, throw away your rotting jack o'lanterns, and prepare for the month with an extra hour of sleep.

First Listen: The Arcs, 'Yours, Dreamily'

Can’t get enough of The Black Keys? Welcome to funk and soul nirvana. Yours, Dreamily comes in premiere of The Arcs, Dan Auerbach’s newest project after The Black Keys. Opening up with warnings from a doctor, Yours, Dreamily then launches into a full-fledged funk-lounge album, sure to send tingles of pleasure through the bodies of listeners both old and new.

The tracks are held together by grooving bass beats and hollow voices, creating the classic yet refreshing R&B slow jams that we all loved about Auerbach’s The Black Keys.
